A little pre-vacay update:)

Look how big Mr Cruiser the Bruiser is getting these days. He is such a handsome little man. A snuggle bug for Auntie Trace too. I LOVE that!

Livvy is just a movin these days. She decided to crawl, then three days later she wanted to pull herslef up. Now she "cruises" around the ottoman and her stand-up toys. She is such a happy girl. She adores her big sister beyond measure and loves to play. She would cruise around and play all day if we let her. Life is good for Olivia Jean at 8 months old.

Gracie is such a big girl. She saw her first musical last week. Beauty and the Beast, and she lasted pretty much the whole show. Her and Maddie were true princesses that night. We are SO proud. Grace is really getting independent these days. She has decided that she can do pretty much anything on her own:) We think shes pretty good too, but it doesn't hurt to have Mommy and Daddy around for a hand here and there;)

Livvy showing off her moves on the laundry basket. She is such a smiley baby. I can't believe how fast time has gone.
Dan and I are great. We are loving our girls immensely and enjoying being parents together. We make a pretty great team. Dan is so great with his girls on the weekends so mommy can still work a few days, I do so love my job:) I am driving to AL with my mom and the girls for a ten day vacay in Gulf Shores. We are looking forward to the beach for sure. Mostly just excited to be outside every day:) Hope your March was great, we'll catch up in April!

Cru Thomas Hosford

Welcome Cru Thomas Hosford! He was born March 3, 2009 at 6:35 am. He weighed in at 6 lbs 5 oz and was 18 1/2 inches long. A perfect little peanut:) He is healthy and is showing no signs of the difficulties Maddie wa born with. Yay!!!! Thank God for this miracle of life. We are just thrilled to be an Aunt and Uncle again and to enjoy all that Cru little life will bring. Congrats Tom, Lauren, and Madilyn on your new addition. We love you Cru baby!
The proud Auntie Tracy

Cru was staring at his momma here- only 2 hrs old:)

Snuggled into mommas arms. The most perfect place in the world:)

SO mad about the first bath

Finally that bath is over and I can cuddle in this warm blankie

Happy March

Such a happy girl. Our 7 month old "baby" is almost always happy. She will let you know when she is not BUT that is rarely compared to how content she is just to be a part of this world. She loves to be around the main attraction though. She gets bored when her sissy isn't around to entertain her:)

And entertain she does. What a trip this 2 year old is. She is getting so much more creative and figures things out so quickly. Gracie keeps us on our toes but loves life so much. She lives it to the FULLEST possible and takes us along for the ride. She is so wonderful, we love her to the ends of the earth.

Cutie pie cousins. They had so much fun at the museum together, and so did Livvy and I(Tracy). We are SO excited to welcome Maddies baby brother Cru into the world this week. We can't wait to have a little man around to balance out these girlies too:) Yay for baby boys!

Does this little peanut look like her daddy or what? SO stinkin cute and smiley. Too bad you can't see her new tooth. Yay for teeth!

This pic was when she was chewing on everyhting in sight waiting for that tooth to pop through. We are SO greatful that our girls are good teethers. A whole lot of chewing, drooling and sucking BUT not much fussing. And next thing you know- Teeth:)
We hope your March brings lots of joy and adventures. And certainly HEALTH- a shortage of this the past few months:) We will keep you updated on the joys of our March, starting with Cru's arrival in the next few days. Prayers for Lauren as she preps to bring this little man out to meet us all:)
